The Walk
The Walk

A Moment In Time
A Moment In Time

Martin Gerber was a small man, always dressed in a white shirt, grey pants, and a rather ugly green tie with pictures of golf clubs covering it that his wife had gotten him. He did not like golf, or any sport for that matter, but it had been a birthday present, and he had little care... Read more

Sleep 2
Sleep 2

...Dragged like a screaming hog through the mud to the butcher's block... It is pointless to attempt a guess at the date.

The Secret
The Secret
Philip Challinor

He awoke in silence and darkness, listened and strained his eyes. He heard nothing and saw only the darkness. Then there were whispers. "He has heard," said the first whisper. "He has seen," whispered another. He knew they were silently approaching, their hands closing... Read more

Beyond The Cemetery
Beyond The Cemetery
I became somewhat ill after writing this. A mysterious house next to a cemetery. Strange shadows . Feel free to criticize.

It seemed, for a while, that these terrible visions and nightmares were the horrible price I had to pay for my newfound knowledge. I investigated the attic, from which haunting sounds had been coming from for a some time now. Daylight came in and illuminated the closed space...

Black Eyes Under The Blue Moon
